The Jets quarterback Zach Wilson perhaps had the last game of his season this Thursday. His terrible performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars provoked the fans to boo him, and subsequently benched for the second time this season. Well, this time, Wilson’s mother didn’t let things go as usual and instead took shots at the entire fanbase.

During the Week 16 game against New York Jets, Zach Wilson had a hard time rolling the ball downfield. His incompletions and inaccuracies became an added embarrassment that eventually irked the fans to call him out. His home crowd booed at him, asking head coach Robert Saleh for a better prospect.

Eventually, in the third quarter, Wilson got benched, and the team’s practice squad member Chris Streveler replaced him at the center. Wilson could only rack up nine complete passes out of 18 attempts in 92 yards.

Moreover, Streveler’s stunning performance almost diminished his return next season. All these turnarounds made one of the fans personally message Wilson’s mother Lisa to cheer her up. However, things didn’t go as expected, and she called out the entire Jets fan base as “Toxic.”

“It’s not possible for anyone to be successful here. Your fan base is toxic. Merry Christmas.” Lisa wrote as a reply in a leaked DM shared by sports writer Doug Rush. Meanwhile, Wilson, who took all these backlashes in a sportsman spirit, acknowledged his mistakes. “Yeah, it’s [tough],” Wilson said of the booing fans.
